Our country and the world need individuals who are skilled in the field of education. Yes, we need teachers, and the Education Studies major can be a pathway to a teaching career, but it is also a way to educational and societal change outside the classroom. The Education Studies degree leads to careers in education for individuals and institutions. Because the degree is so broad-based and interdisciplinary, there are a plethora of job possibilities. If you know what career you d like, you can usually cater the degree to your interests.
The nature of the Education Studies degree, whether you take it online (see our 10 Best Online Education Studies Degree ranking), residential, or hybrid, applies to many sectors of our society. You can get jobs in public or private educational institutions, nonprofits, business or corporate jobs, and service organizations. You can work in educational policy, law, or program development. You can go on to graduate school or teach in private schools. Whatever the case may be, you can see, the Bachelor's in Education Studies is a degree that leads many directions. Graduating with an Education Studies major will give you the tools of integrating and applying systematic knowledge to helping individuals and institutions. The research component provides a valuable asset to just about every educational endeavor, as the need for assessment grows more every day. The degree will also empower you to lead within educational institutions and among children and youth for positive change. Some schools place a strong emphasis on the social justice component of the degree.
